Stupid Ideas/Buys of the past (so far)…

Bit Too Many Bullets…

Boys and Girls,

We all like to brag about our achievements and sweep our failures under the carpet… well, my carpet has run out of space so I’ve decided to group my failures and mistakes under Stupid Ideas/Buys of the past (so far)….

This blog is going to be short and sweet as it was just too hard to get my teeth into and swallow.

While this may not be in the realms of woodworking, other than Georgie (Washington) being falsely accused of those mythical wooden dentures… and as members of LJ continue to age, it does cascade headlong into the realms of Stupid choices/ideas/actions, with the ever increasing audience category growth.

In a lot of my posts I have used the terminology Bit the Bullet without regard to my physical attributes. I think I may have performed that action far too many times, literally in the past.

12 months ago, after many prior orthodontic encounters I was informed that my smoke stained pearlies needed an overhaul. Options were presented and due to my penchant for reading, I never swatted up on the full repercussions of the various scenarios available for such a venture.

Needless to say, with total ignorance, I elected to have a full extraction, distributed over two days, with a new set of dentures provided and fitted the next day.

Unfortunately for me, that full replacement may not have been my best suited option and for the first month, this was my staple diet,

squashed bananas.

I did vary that diet by squashing them sideways, lengthways, with a fork (even tried silver cutlery), meat tenderiser, blender, the stilettos of my high heels… however, the result still tasted like… bananas.

The Stupidity was not in the full extraction but rather in not bothering to do some preliminary reading in preparation for such a milestone event….. RTFM.

All sympathy kindly accepted!

Don’t get me started. I do have some cool to look at tools that have never seen any use. I rarely admit it though!
